Indian for lunch. I felt like meat (a bi-annual craving), but still went white. All-in-all, impressed. Hit the “meat spot,” if you will. The tandoori tasted BBQ-y. The lamb lit my mouth pleasantly on fire.
Food: tandoori chicken, lamb in spicy mystery green sauce, rice, mango lassi
Place: Essence of India

Sometimes I can’t understand the logic behind garnishes/accompaniments — take the shredded carrots, raw white onion, and undressed greens here. Do they….think I’m going to eat that with my rice?
Stay tuned — fancy dinner tomorrow evening at my place of employment, Floriole!
